Hello I'm Amy and I am the founder and creative force behind Women Who Create UK.
My passion is creativity and crafts, my purpose championing women in business!
Designer-maker, teacher and creative business owner by training. Mentor, creator of vibrant communities, inspiring in person events & empowering connections by calling.
I was lucky enough to start my early life with Waldorf Steiner Education, a truly creative learning experience immersed in colour and crafts. Later completing a degree in fashion & textiles design Knitwear before starting my career as a freelance textiles designer for a London based knitwear company.
Today a 'portfolio career' is something many of us have cultivated not wanting to be restricted by traditional employment paths. I have never been happy to settle for just one thing/project/passion which has lead me on an exciting career journey so far!
I have run several business, created and managed a 3 story studio space for creative freelancers, curated events, written 5 craft books, taught hundreds of crafts workshops, been commissioned to write for leading UK & US magazines and publications. All allowing me to connected with creative business people around the word, to share and support a passion for creative living.
I am passionate about creative living, cultivating community online and in person, as well as sharing alternative business tools and hand craft skills.
The Women Who Create UK platform, events and community started life as a sparkle in a conversation with my business coach at a point in my career when I was really struggling to see what was next.
I wanted to broaden my reach feeling trapped by crafts but inspired to help women in creative business. So I followed my passion and expertise to where I am today. And so my exciting journey continues to evolve.
